Announcing Horizon Winter Guard!
With the unanimous approval of our board or directors, Horizon Arts is excited to announce that we will be adding an independent color guard to our list of programs in winter 2024.
I’ve frequently heard from color guard directors and performers that they wished for more independent units in Utah. Because Horizon Arts already had the framework built for these types of ensembles, I began putting together a hypothetical scenario of what would be required to create these groups including a financial plan, potential rehearsal venues, and potential staff. After socializing this plan with members of the color guard and performing arts non-profit communities in Utah, I felt comfortable taking it to our board of directors for approval.
Since Horizon already has an indoor percussion program, and indoor color guard programs require similar resources, myself and the board felt like this was an appropriate next step to fulfill our mission of providing “learning and performance opportunities for youth and young adults that develop their character, leadership skills, artistry, musical ability, and selflessness.”
We look forward to sharing more information with you as we continue to kickoff this new chapter of Horizon.
